Michael Palin is taking his one man show on the road

Sir Michael Palin is heading out on a tour of the UK, to promote the paperback release of his latest book.

The tour, which promotes Erebus: The Story of a Ship, will take place this summer.

In the first part of the show, Palin tells the story of HMS Erebus, a small Royal Naval ship that took on the Antarctic and the Arctic in the 1840s.

In the second half, he tells his own life story, including Monty Python, Ripping Yarns and the TV travel series that have taken him  from the North Pole to North Korea – including previously unseen footage.
